Supply Chain Management: Capstone Experience

*This is the final program for participants obtaining the Executive Certificate in Supply Chain Management. Only those who have completed all five Supply Chain programs may enroll.

Description

The Capstone Experience requires participants to apply the supply chain knowledge they have gained from the other programs in the Supply Chain Certificate Program.  This course will specifically focus on identifying opportunities to reduce costs both within a firm and for companies upstream and downstream to a firm. In addition to working with cases that involve the latest issues in supply chain management, the Capstone Experience will use topics such as global supply chain management and e-commerce to identify different supply chain strategies.  You will identify a problem in your organization that can be solved through the application of a specific supply chain strategy.
